Landmark Christian School senior Steven Samuels has been named the school’s 2022 STAR Student. The Midtown Atlanta Rotary Group announced the honor Tuesday, February 22, 2022, at a virtual breakfast held in honor of all Fulton county schools STAR award winners. Steven selected Dennis Wilson, Honors Multivariable Calculus II teacher at Landmark Christian School, as his STAR Teacher.
Not often do you find a hidden gem in your surroundings, however, Landmark has found one in coach and teacher Baffour Osei. He works to keep his father and grandfather's education legacy alive.
Coach B, as he is known around campus, is not only the running back coach for Varsity and JV football but also the STEM teacher. Originally from Ghana, West Africa, he moved to the U.S. at age 13, to live with the McMaster family. He studied physics at Fisk University and played baseball while also attending Vanderbilt University to play football and earn his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering. His parents still live in Ghana where his dad was in the Navy and stationed all over the world.
